Taipei, President Tsai Ing-wen (???) opened a new creative park dedicated to the Hoklo language in Changhua City on Saturday, the first of its kind in Taiwan.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony was attended by Changhua County Magistrate Wei Ming-ku (???), Presidential Office Secretary-General Chen Chu (??), Culture Minister Cheng Li-chiun (???) and Education Minister Wu Maw-kuen (???).
The county is rich in Taiwanese culture and has been the source of many popular Taiwanese songs, Tsai said, adding that she hopes the new facility will help spread and promote Hoklo language and culture for generations to come.
The president also praised Wei for helping turn the creative park into a reality, an idea first conceived by former county magistrate Chou Ching-yu (???), who long wanted a public center dedicated to Hoklo culture.
The park features a slew of literary works in Hoklo, as well as art, music and souvenirs.
